Royal Navy gets new eyes in the skies
When the United Kingdom's Queen Elizabeth class carriers go into service in 2020, they'll be watched over by a new generation of eyes in the sky. In an announcement by the Minister for Defence Procurement, Harriett Baldwin MP, Lockheed Martin UK was awarded a £269 million (US $331 million) contract to develop and manufacture the Crowsnest Airborne Surveillance System to alert the carrier groups against incoming missile and other airborne threats.

Don't like blood? Neither does this potentially life-saving titanium
When a medical implant such as a stent or catheter is rejected by the body, blood platelets adhere to the device, forming a clot that encapsulates it. Those clots can in turn lead to heart attacks, embolisms or infections. One solution is to put patients on blood-thinning medications for the rest of their lives. Engineers at Colorado State University, however, have developed an alternative – blood-repellent titanium that could be used to build the implants.

NASA confirms 2016 was the hottest year on record
Another year, another broken temperature record. As early data predicted, NASA and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) have now reported that globally, 2016 was the warmest year since records began in 1880. That puts us on a streak of three years in a row that have surpassed previous records, painting a worrying picture of a long-term warming trend.

Lizard-inspired pens change ink color as you draw
A couple of years ago, a group of entrepreneurs successfully Kickstarted a little something known as the Chameleon Pen. In a nutshell, it's an art pen that changes color tone as you draw – for example, a green Chameleon Pen's ink progressively goes from light green to dark green as the ink is applied to the paper. The same group is now back with Chameleon Pens Color Tops, that change between two completely different colors.

Thync Relax: 10 days with the new "neuroscience" wearable
The original Thync was one of the most eyebrow-raising wearables of 2015. Sending electrical currents through your head to essentially zap your brain into either a calmer or more-energized mood, we saw it as a potential preview of a future where tech can replace drugs. While the new follow-up, Thync Relax, may be wrapped in a more consumer-friendly package, our experience with a beta version gave us plenty to be skeptical about.

Revved-up carbon purifies radioactive water
After the Fukushima nuclear plant accident occurred, hundreds of millions of gallons of radioactive water was left over. That water is still being stored, as no one knows quite what to do with it. Scientists from Texas' Rice University and Russia's Kazan Federal University, however, may have an answer. They've developed a type of carbon that can reportedly filter radionuclides from water.

VR "smell mask" lets you sniff things you may regret
For over a century creative entrepreneurs have been trying to find ways to incorporate scents and smells into multimedia experiences. In the early 20th century theatre owners experimented with spraying perfume into auditoriums at specific moments during films and by the early 1960s there were two competing smell technologies battling for audience's olfactory delight. Smell-O-Vision and AromaRama were not embraced by the general public. Unsurprisingly, people seemed to dislike having smells pumped into their faces while watching movies. OhRoma is the latest attempt to integrate smells into entertainment and like many new innovations, it's coming from the porn industry.

US Army's hoverbike takes flight
What started as crazy DIY project in an Australian backyard six years ago has now blossomed into a cutting-edge aircraft for the US Army. We've tracked the various iterations of the Malloy Hoverbike since inventor Chris Malloy first showed off a prototype in 2011, and now after teaming up the US Department of Defense the mechanical engineer has seen a military version of his little baby take flight, with officials hoping to use it for resupply missions to create an "Amazon on the battlefield."

New laser surfs weird wave physics for improved efficiency
A team at the University of California San Diego has developed a new type of laser that could lead to smaller and more efficient lasers for medical, computing and optical communication applications. The new laser makes use of an unusual physics phenomenon called bound states in the continuum (BIC), which keeps the light waves confined even when in an open system, and it can be adjusted to emit beams of different wavelengths and shapes.

Pleasing the crowd: Music makers that hit the right note
Throwing some of your hard-earned dosh at projects on crowdfunding platforms is a bit of a gamble. Even successful campaigns can fail to deliver, leaving backers empty handed and, often, quite furious. Sometimes though, an idea jumps off the campaign page and makes it into production. Here are a few music-making project success stories.
